CRIMSON and GRAY 

Mary E. Wells High School 

SOUTHBRIDGE 

Massachusetts 




MRS. KATHRYN BEAUREGARD 



We, the Class of 1951, are particularly favored to have 
the honor of dedicating our yearbook to Mrs. Kathryn 
Beauregard, our faculty adviser. 

She has given valuable service to the school as a sterling 
teacher and has entered with enthusiasm into our sports and 
our fun. Our lives have been the richer for knowing her. 




JAMES M. ROBERTSON 
Principal 




THE HOPE OF OUR WORLD 



Today, as we stand on the brink of a most con- 
fused and uncertain world, many of us are prone to 
view the immediate and distant futures dismally. Our 
outlooks reflect pessimism. Our hopes seem inadequate 
to meet the financial, social and moral trends apparent. 

Such reasoning seems wholly indefensible to me; 
such reasoning reeks with defeatism; such reasoning 
is entirely at odds with the spirit of our fathers and 
forefathers. For we in America have within our grasp, 
the hope of the world. 

We have HEALTH. Here in America we find the 
most honored of medical associations; we see public 
health programs in every state, city, and town; we 
have institutions struggling twenty-four hours a day 
to discover preventative measures and curative means 
in a constant struggle against disease, injury and death. 
Research laboratory scientists and technicians work 
round-the-clock to produce facilities to make our 
lives healthier and happier. In short, we are by the 
large a healthy nation; the healthiest on the globe. 
The Bible tells us that "Cleanliness is next to Godli- 
ness." Our America by every means at her disposal is 
attempting to reach this ideal. 

We have EDUCATION. No country on earth 
has made education as public as the United States of 
America. Education, started in Massachusetts over 
three hundred years ago, has grown into a full time 
profession. Every child in the United States is exposed 
to some kind of institutionalized learning. Public 
schools, private schools, state supported universities 
and privately endowed colleges have made us the most 
literate nation in the world. We are fast proving by 
our advances in the scientific, literary, trade and pro- 
fessional worlds the truth of the old adage: "A little 



learning is a dangerous thing." Our philosophy today 
is that education never ceases. With such a philosophy, 
our country must go forward, not backward to the 
Dark Ages of ignorance and superstition. 

Perhaps the greatest of all blessings is religious 
tolerance. Side by side in America works the Jew, 
The Catholic, the Protestant. Side by side these three 
great religious faiths present a united front, staring 
down the bigotry and prejudice exhibited by many 
nations today. 

America has an abundance of natural resources. 
Granted that we are not entirely self sufficient in this 
respect, we do recognize the fact that abundance there 
is, and if that abundance ever becomes a scarcity, 
science is waiting. Scientists are constantly seeking 
methods by which good synthetics can be produced, 
if and when a need arises. 

These United States of America have strength of 
military, naval and air power. The combined strength 
of these three great branches of our armed forces 
serves a two-fold purpose. They stand as a bulwark of 
home defense; they operate as a unit to prevent ag- 
gression against freedom loving nations less fortunate 
than the United States. 

Finally, we have today's generation of young 
people. Young men and women comparable to the 
members of the Class of 1951 of the Mary E. Wells 
High School are ready and eager to build a better 
world. America's younger generation, healthier than 
those of yesterday, betted educated than their fore- 
fathers, more tolerant than their elders — these young 
men and young women — you, our graduates — you 
are the hope of our world!

The Road To Success 

_Ta.T commencement time your thoughts are naturally of success — in your past 
accomplishments and in the future. As you have discovered, the road to success 

is traveled slowly and on foot. Each mile, therefore, is significant, for it brings 
you that much closer to your destination. 

You have now completed an important part of your journey and the rewarding 
years lie ahead of you. At this happy time American Optical Company extends 

to each of you congratulations and best wishes. There are many degrees of 
success and many yardsticks of measurement. Your own definition, we believe, 
is the one you must live by. Now and for the future, we wish you the 
best of all things.
